Strip "The King" Weathers is a Dinoco Blue veteran racecar and racing legend voiced by NASCAR veteran Richard Petty. Weathers is an anthropomorphic version of Petty's aerodynamic 1970 Plymouth Superbird, is the same shade of blue, and bears Petty's actual racecar number (#43). He is one of the racecars in the 2005 Piston Cup three-way tie, along with Chick Hicks and Lightning McQueen. His sponsor (Dinoco), like Petty's (STP), is a well-known oil company.
